Good morning.
5:29 am
ItalianGreyhound

Good Morning, Scrabbler
5:31 am
Scrabbler

Hi IG.
5:33 am
ItalianGreyhound

the Bald eagle got a squirrel in the back yard yesterday
5:34 am
Scrabbler

Uh, oh.
5:34 am
ItalianGreyhound

the eagle is very non-shy; surprising. Ive only ever seen it with a fish
5:34 am
jeepers

I've seen that happen too, It, it is amazing. They are huge.
5:35 am
ItalianGreyhound

Hi, Jeepers - yes it is a huge bird
5:36 am
Scrabbler

Very big. I see them when I kayak and they dive for fish.
5:38 am
ChampFit

VERY cool IG!!!
5:39 am
ItalianGreyhound

hi, Champ - the squirrels invade the bird feeder, so I guess its Karma
5:40 am
ItalianGreyhound

sorry, silly
5:43 am
ItalianGreyhound

I meant my comment was silly
5:44 am
Scrabbler

The food chain is real. There are no grocery stores for wildlife.
5:53 am
ItalianGreyhound

Indeed, Scrab
5:55 am
HarryHood

scrab you OK up there?
5:57 am
ChampFit

No worries IG. When we went to Alaska, my husband and I were on a small island looking out to the water, and an eagle was flying towards us....
5:57 am
ChampFit

My husband starts doing this goofy cawking sound, with his arms up, calling the eagle. Well, wouldn't you know, it landed right above us, in it's nest???
5:57 am
ChampFit

Now Bill thinks he's the Eagle Whisperer...whacko.
5:59 am
ItalianGreyhound

Maybe he is :)
5:59 am
ChampFit

In his head!
6:01 am
Scrabbler

HH, it has been a wild week here. I did well as did all of my family. There were many heroes and also criminals (looters.)
6:02 am
ChampFit

So glad to hear, scrabs!
6:03 am
Scrabbler

So far we know of 40 deaths. People froze in cars and in homes. So tragic.
6:04 am
ChampFit

that's so horrible.
6:05 am
Scrabbler

Cell phones ran out of power and couldn't be charged.
6:07 am
ChampFit

That follows. So awful.
6:09 am
Scrabbler

It is.
6:29 am
Scrabbler

85 left and I need a break.
6:29 am
ChampFit

hagd!
6:32 am
HarryHood

sorry I missed that scrab - glad you're OK.
6:32 am
HarryHood

And good luck bills on monday night - big big game
6:33 am
Scrabbler

Go Bills!
6:33 am
HarryHood

I am so nervous for this game
6:37 am
Scrabbler

We need no turnovers. Josh cannot throw any INTs. No fumbles.
6:38 am
HarryHood

forecasting rain in cinci on monday night
6:38 am
HarryHood

and warm.
6:39 am
ChampFit

I love watching Josh! He's something else.
6:39 am
HarryHood

when they're on, it's a thing of beauty
6:40 am
ChampFit

Of course, Joe Burrow's no slouch. Gonna be a great game.
6:40 am
ChampFit

Have been pulling for the Bills all season. The Houston Texans are dead to me.
6:40 am
HarryHood

it does look like a fantastic game.
6:41 am
HarryHood

sorry about your texans. oilers. whatever.
6:41 am
ChampFit

I blame management. Gave up our season tickets, thankfully. It is what it is.
6:43 am
aslindy

hello all
6:43 am
ChampFit

Have seen some fantastic football this season though! It's been super fun to watch.
6:43 am
HarryHood

there have been some great games and close finishes
6:43 am
HarryHood

an eagles-bills super bowl will be amazing
6:44 am
ChampFit

It would!
6:44 am
HarryHood

as long as buffalo wins
6:45 am
Scrabbler

This city is crazy for the Bills: flags, hats, clothing.
6:46 am
ChampFit

Something to look forward to!
6:48 am
HarryHood

bbl - 76 to go
6:50 am
ChampFit

hagd!
8:14 am
HarryHood

49 here. challenging grid
8:16 am
MollyL

How did the ski trip go?
8:17 am
HarryHood

was fun! I skied with my younger daughter the whole time - the older kids ditched us at the very beginning, and I didn't hardly see them until we were ready to go
8:17 am
MollyL

Great. I'm glad you all had fun.
8:18 am
HarryHood

we will hopefully take a longer trip to VT in february
8:21 am
MollyL

Do you get some kind of mid-winter break in February?
8:21 am
HarryHood

yes - a week at washington's bday
8:22 am
mael

yeah, we usually get a week here in New England
8:22 am
MollyL

Is that in place of Spring break, or in addition to?
8:22 am
mael

glad you had a fun outing!
8:22 am
mael

in addition to
8:22 am
HarryHood

we'll get passover off as well in april
8:22 am
MollyL

A whole week, or just the day?
8:23 am
mael

the one in april is spring break, aligning with easter/passover
8:23 am
HarryHood

the way it works this year is unusual - we're going to end up with 2 whole weeks off.
8:23 am
HarryHood

it's tough to squeeze the curriculum in with all this vacation
8:24 am
MollyL

Wow, our kids just get a week at Christmas and a week at Easter. How many days are your kids required to be in school per year?
8:24 am
HarryHood

it's private - no requirement, nothing.
8:24 am
HarryHood

I think pubilc is 180.
8:25 am
MollyL

Hmm, our kids have 180 too and they don't get three weeks off.
8:25 am
HarryHood

we definitely don't get close to 180.
8:25 am
mael

school usually goes longer here
8:26 am
mael

(we're in public school)
8:26 am
HarryHood

we go till early/mid june
8:26 am
HarryHood

but we started really late this year - I don't know why.
8:26 am
mael

yeah? we started last week of august
8:26 am
hokie carla

My kids always got off like Dec. 22 and then went back Jan. 2.
8:27 am
HarryHood

seems like parents who pay for school would want more for their money
8:27 am
hokie carla

and they always started around Aug 25 and got out around Jun 11.
8:27 am
mael

eh, parents that pay for their school generally have resources to care for the kids the rest of the time too
8:28 am
HarryHood

but one would think they would want the educational days. anyway, I think that many of those days in the public school around here are wasted.
8:28 am
mael

the private school on my street is usually on during public school vacations, and they don't have the mandatory weekly half-day
8:29 am
MollyL

Your kids get a half day every week?
8:29 am
mael

unfortunately yes
8:29 am
mael

many districts here in MA have it, K-12
8:29 am
HarryHood

union?
8:29 am
MollyL

That is crazy.
8:30 am
mael

it's for teacher development, so maybe?
8:30 am
hokie carla

ours had a day off at the end of every 8 weeks for that
8:30 am
HarryHood

I cringe when I hear we're having PD days. they are usually such an awful waste of time
8:31 am
mael

oh, they also have that day off too, worry not :(
8:32 am
MollyL

Day care must be a nightmare to schedule and rearrange
8:32 am
mael

I'm lucky because I work from home, but it's a huge pain in the ass
8:34 am
hokie carla

reading the def makes me think it's what they use to remove skin tags, etc
10:00 am

In the US, we spell that word with a z instead of an s
10:01 am
cybernan

thought they did in Britain too
10:01 am
hokie carla

could have said UK and Canada, but I think we all know Canada is included in UK spelling, as is Aus, NZ, etc.
10:01 am

ty molly

no - we use the z in CAnada as well
10:02 am
hokie carla

not for all the other z/s words though

It is hard to keep up with who spells what how. Canada takes it's cue from the UK on so many words. Cheque, zed, "in hospital", holiday (not vacation), colour, favour, etc.
